    Does anyone know what this growth is on my 2 year old Silkie Cockerels inner side of leg it feels just like a toe nail but with no toe.

    That's a spur. Odd that it hasn't come in by now since he's two years old but it looks like it's finally growing in.

    Thanks so much for your reply, i am so relieved its nothing serious, i thought silkies only had five toes including the spur.
    So thanks again.
